about a year ago with a piece of michelle obama mail that we spilt the universe in to half. we did half the old way and direct mail consultants have been talking about and half using the data analytics world. both sides were convinced they were right. data analyticked performed by 14%, which in our world is a bunk of money. it allows us to use our data better. >> there's stories about sara jessica parker fundraising e-mail, there were seven versions. you mention she was a mom. what's another example of something that you split many ways to optimize further recipients? >> here's the truth, every e-mail had been tested a variety of ways. our team -- our ridiculously talented digital director, teddy. >> what was the real honey pot? what was a dog? >> in every e-mail we had tests. they loved giving me grief and testing me against everyone. george clooney completely thrashed me. >> that was the most lucrative e-mail ever. >> talked about the clooney e-mail. it changed how money is raised online. >> that taught us a bunch. >> tell us about what you learned. it was a dinner with the president
that of the service of her sons. dr. biden has co-sponsored with our first lady, michelle obama, the national initiative joining forces, providing support and expanding opportunities for veterans and active duty personnel and their families. that exemplifies the commitment to those who serve and who have served, and the strength of character of jill biden and of her home, the first state. i know delaware's citizens will honor their state's namesake, follow her as she comes to life in a few years and embrace those who sail in her for decades to come as she in turn honors the first state's legacy, and she sails the seas in defense of our nation and upholding her state's motto: freedom and liberty. and the navy motto, forever courageous. now, it's my happy privilege to introduce the sponsor of the uss delaware, dr. jill biden.
